. >>> the boston bombings put president obama in the most difficult position any president has to face, consoler in chief. we take a closer look. >> reporter: circumstances and geography change but we have been here before. new york, tucson, nasa to aurora, virginia tech to sandy hook, oklahoma city and now to boston. >> i'm here today on behalf of the american people with a simple message -- every one of us has been touched by this attack on your beloved city. every one of us stands with you. >> reporter: there is a randomness to the violence that punk tours the soul of this country and a rhythm to its aftermath. the frenzy of rescue, the hailing heroes, the candles and the flowers, the burst of patriotism and attention of a president. called to duty to speak for and to the american people. this is how the nation grieves. >> you showed us, boston, that in the face of evil, americans will lift up what's good. in the face of cruelty, we will choose compassion. in the face of those who would visit death upon innocence, we will choose to save and the comfort and the healing. >> at every level of pr
. there are many unanswered questions still going on in this investigation. president obama addressed the topic of unanswered questions last night when he talked to the country after the capture of the second suspected bombing suspect. this is what the president had to say.

thoughts on that? >> i don't think that that's going to happen. the obama administration has been clear, they're distancing themselves from that concept. you've got an american citizen. we don't have dzhokhar going abroad in training. his brother apparently did. but dzhokhar didn't. and dzhokhar is going to be tried as an individual on his own right. so i think the chances of this ending up as an enemy combatant are very small. >> but you've heard that because of high security concerns they would like to question him for a period of time, albeit briefly, before mirandizing him and reading him his rights. how long can they do that? how far can they go with those questions? >> well, that's a very good question. because the longer we go, the less likely there is that there's a public security issue here. one thing that the defense will certainly raise is the remarks of the police chief of watertown in which he said these are the only two guys, we're done. now the argument from the government will be well, he wasn't informed. but, you know, that's going to be played out pretty significantly
